Dewey Is Top Cat! Dewey: the Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World Is NYTimes Best-Seller
Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World, reviewed here on October 27, is now heading the New York Times best sellers' list. The story of the tiny kitten stuffed down the Spencer, Iowa, Public Library's book drop on a below-zero winter night seems to have universal appeal to children and adults alike.
Because of Dewey's amazing empathy with all comers and his unique joie de vivre which author Vicki Myron calls "Dewey magic," his fame spread during his nineteen years of life in the library--from the local scene to the national media and then around the world. Much more than just a cute cat tale, Dewey's is an inspiring story of a relationship which transcends the usual bounds, a true and truly touching account of an animal who freely gave all he had to the people and place he loved.
Plans for a movie starring (Dewey fan) Meryl Streep in the role of author Vicki Myron are reported to be nearing completion. Meanwhile, whether you are a cat lover or not, all library and book lovers out there should make sure that a copy of this wonderful book comes to live with you and your family.
